What can I make with the vintage buttons I have collected?
By Jane from NE
Sew or glue them to lampshades, greeting cards, scrapbook pages, invitations, curtains, tie backs for curtains, place holders, napkin rings, Christmas ornaments, picture frames, magnets for fridge, or my favorite, jewelry! (09/15/2010)
You can make those fabric flowers using the button as the center of the flower. A lot of people are wearing these flowers like a broach. http://www.tipjunkie.com/fabric-flower-tutorials/ (09/15/2010)
You can also glue them in a multilevel design for decorative lids for just about any kind of box. (09/15/2010)
I make brooches with mine. (09/15/2010)
I saw the prettiest button wreath made into a shadowbox that had almost every kind of button you could find in it. The mat was heart shaped and the inside was full of beautiful buttons. It was obviously for display purposes, but it is so beautiful.
I posted a button heart craft on a family website a few months ago, hope this helps:
